SOURCE: 07 Equinox Leaking water at the front corners of

check the adjustment of your sunroof, i work at a dealer and i just had a 2006 equinox in with the same exact problem, if you look at where the glass attaches to the sunroof rails you will see 2 torx screws on each side, with the sunroof closed, loosen the screws a little bit, don't remove them, push the glass up untill its level with the roof and the seal around the glass looks even all the way around where it contacts the roof sheet metal, then tighten down the screws while holding the glass in place. if it continues to leak, remove the sun visors and the clips for the sun visors, i believe they are either philips scres or torx, there will be 2 screws on the visor itself, and 1 for the clip. then remove the front pillar trim panel, you will see a small cover in the upper panel, use a pick or a sharp thin tool to pry the cover off and remove the 7mm screw in there, pull the door weatherstrip off and pull the trim panel off, after you do that gently pull the headliner down in the front corner and peek up at the sunroof frame, make sure the drain ose is still connected, the procedure is the same for both left and right sides. this should definitely clear up your problem!

SOURCE: my 2005 cobalt has water leaking at the heater

I have not had one person that is happy with the cobalt. Everyone I have known that has one has traded it in before all the other problems occured. . You will have to test areas with water and see if it causes a leak. Also the box has a vent hose that could become clogged. This will also cause the AC condensation to overflow. Run the AC for awhile and see if you get drainage.. If not its clogged

SOURCE: Water leaks in the back passenger side of 2007 Equinox.

The spare tire well is pooling water, check there. GM knows about it, but won't say it's a factory defect. Sorry, I'm in the same boat you are. See here: http://ww2.justanswer.com/uploads/Bluegorilla/2008-10-09_134337_08-08-057-001a.pdf

SOURCE: Water on floorboard passenger side on 2005

The quick test is to run car with the a/c on in your driveway and check to see if it is dripping water on the ground under the vehicle at the passenger side as that's the side the drain tube is on. If it is then odds are it's not the problem but, just to be sure, at the same time you can pull the carpet back a bit on the passenger side and look to see if any water is dripping out of the heater a/c housing. The other part of the test is to have someone sit inside the vehicle [engine not running] and pour water all around the edges of the windshield on the passenger side first then slowly work up to the sunroof. At some point you should find your leak. I see a lot of leaky windshields that's why I would advise you to start there first. Make sure whoever is in the vehicle is watching down by the front of the floor for any water trickling in as that's usually where you'll find it. If just the compressor and related underhood parts were replaced it shouldn't affect the drain on the evaporator core. Hope this helps you solve the mystery!

Equinox driver and passenger side floor boards flood everytime it rains. i don't have a sunroof. it used to only drip when it rained but recently my floor board have been filling up with puddles


The grille at the base of the windshield collects water and directs it down through ducts in the door pillars for discharge underneath. The ducts can become clogged with debris, causing water to back up and leak onto the floor. The ducts have to be cleaned, often by using a tool improvised from a wire coat hanger, to break up the debris - something you owner's manual doesn't mention.

There is water leaking inside above my passenger side door when it rains pretty hard?


is the water leak allowing the water to wick up into the headliner or is the headliner getting wet without water coming past the weather stripping around the door?

If it is wicking then fix the weather stripping.
If the water is getting headliner wet with out passing the weather stripping then you have a leaking sun roof.

You can the door seal by sitting in the car while you have some spray water (garden hose) gentle at the frontal and upper door seal.
If not leak there inspect seal of sun roof and real seal with correct type of sealant.

Water is pooling in rear storage compartment after rain. No windows were left open, sunroof was closed.


Sounds like you have a leak in the body somewhere.

Has the rear end ever been wrecked, may be something wasnt sealed properly.

Leaks by feet


1st the sunroof leak- there is some type of channel/drain to direct water out of the sunroof area. Open the sunroof and look around the outer inside area for evidence of junk blocking the channel/drain, such as leaves, dirt, pine needles, etc. and clean out with a vacuum and toothpicks (to dislodge). If you can find a drain tube in a channel (it should direct water to the underside of the car), the easiest way to clear it is with compressed air.
2nd Since this is much worse since the windshield was replaced, I am thinking that it was not installed and sealed properly. So, first try to clean the channels and any drain tube(s). Next, with a hose, spray the windshield only, not the sunroof, and see if it leaks at your feet in the front seating area. If it does, the windshield install is to blame for the leak there.

2005 Chevy Equinox sunroof problems


Some customers may comment that the sunroof will no longer respond to the control switch while in a vented, partially opened, or fully opened position.
Cause A software issue with the sunroof control module may cause the sunroof control module to incorrectly indicate a "closed" position, which may result in no power to the sunroof motor.
Correction Verify the customer concern. If a condition is present, replace the sunroof control module with a new sunroof control module, P/N 15847643. Refer to the Service Procedure in this bulletin.
Service Procedure
  1. Verify the customer concern by opening and closing the sunroof. • If the sunroof will not open , check the power windows. - If the power windows are also inoperative, check the fuse. If the fuse has opened, refer to Corporate Bulletin Number 05-08-64-004 to install 30A circuit breaker. - If the power windows are fully functional, refer to "Power Sunroof Inoperative" diagnostics (SI Document ID# 1392967) in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox or Saturn VUE Service Manual. • If the sunroof will open (or is already open), but will not close , proceed to Step 2.
  2. Replace the sunroof control module. Refer to "Sunroof Control Module Replacement" procedure in the Body section of the 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1196049) or Saturn VUE Service Manual (SI Document ID# 1710479).
  3. Open and close the sunroof in order to confirm that the customer concern has been resolved.
